Patriotic Chinese have denounced Christmas as a barbarian attack on the ancient glories of Chinese culture.
Of some 12,000 Chinese net users asked “Are you concerned about the act of cultural aggression known as Christmas?”, 78% patriotically agreed that they felt “concern over this attack on Chinese culture,” with 22% treacherously siding with the foreign devils by indicating they felt no such concern.
Right-thinking Chinese report a sense of alarm about the attack Santa is so clearly spearheading on their culture:
“I’m concerned that the day will come when the Chinese forget their traditional celebrations. Protecting Chinese culture is our duty as Chinese!”
More credulous Chinese seemed taken in by this subtle ploy to undermine Chinese values:
“There’s no need to worry about whether Christmas is good or bad. This is just a new social development. Just because we celebrate Christmas doesn’t mean we have to throw out traditional celebrations such as the Lunar New Year.”
Presumably some sort of ban on Christmas for sullying the purity of Chinese culture is not out of the question…
